Goa, India Part 1

Apr 9, 2013

From Munnar we mosied our way to Goa through a 5 hour bus, a missed train, an overnight stay in a bustling city that didn't know a lick of English, and then finally (finally) a ten hour train to Goa, the famous beach towns of India. And believe it or not, that was one of our easiest slash shortest journeys!

I've made this a two-parter because I couldn't narrow down all the palm tree and wave pictures I wanted to share. So instead I've opted to spam you with a bunch of them. Let's all kick back and pretend we're there right now ;)

  1. So many lovely pictures I can't comment about them all! But I must say, dang those are HUGE ears of corn! Reminds me of Nacho Libre ("Get that corn outta muh face!") Haha. Looks like you're having a wonderful time.

  6. Can't blame you for wanting to show all of your pictures! Sometimes, you just can't whittle them down to a few, because they're all so very GOOD (as they are here!). I really like that photo of the two red doors. I love seeing all the different cultural aspects, too.

  38. Ah amazing photography, I'm so jealous I really want to travel as much as I can and I've not been away in a few years so every time I see photography from a different country it just makes me want to add it to the list!
    Love the photograph of the man cooking the corn, the lighting just pulls the whole photograph together!

  48. You've wonderfully captured them! These are great photos! I've always wanted to go to Goa. I like how the cows popped in your photos. I remember them being in the middle of the intersections oblivious to traffic.

  51. wow I am LOVING this update and def do not mind at all several posts of one place, hell I did that w/ puerto rico and that wasn't nearly as cool!!! yes, three exclamations marks needed there. the bus and the cow pictures look like they're from nat'l geo. or something and the roasted corn fondly reminds me of Mexico : ) those train/bus rides sound insanely long!! was your whole trip 2 months?
